  1. Pokémon Go has proved to be a long-lasting craze with many unique, interesting, and sometimes dangerous stories arising from players going out into the real world to capture the titular creatures. One of the most amazing things to us here at Extra Life, however, is how people in the Extra Life community have been using the game to come together with their community and band together for the kids. The Guilds in Albany, New York and in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota both organized PokéWalks in their respective areas over the last few days. What exactly is a PokéWalk? People have begun planning events where members of the local community can come together, Pokémon Go players or not, and enjoy a day at a park or other public area. Lures can be placed at PokéStops along the walking route to bring in the Pokémon and the community. In some cases, local businesses along the route have even gotten involved to support participants. In New York, the Albany Guild brought people together to participate in one such PokéWalk on the 16th. Located in and around Albany's Washington Park, hundreds of people turned out to connect and catch Pokémon. By all accounts it was a huge success, even though the servers for Pokémon Go went down. According to Albany Guild president Lucas Fox, @Xeserox: We had about 400 People show up to the event (despite servers being down for the game). We signed up 130+ people in 3 hours. We started sign ups 30 minutes before the official kick off of the event because of the number of people that showed up. And we continued sign ups 30 minutes after the event ended, because our line was still that long. You can find images of the Albany PokéWalk on the Albany Guild page. This was followed independently by members of the Minneapolis-St.Paul, Minnesota Guild working together with local event organisation This Is Geek to hold a PokéWalk in Edina, MN's Centennial Lakes Park on the 17th. Over 2,000 people came to the event, which was merely a test run to see how future walks might go. Guild member, event organizer, and This Is Geek Treasurer Shanna Hartzell described her experience bringing together the community: It was a humbling experience to see well over 2000 people interacting and enjoy each others company. This was a new type of event for Minnesota as a whole. While the servers were down instead of leaving or complaining everyone was talking, sharing stories, tips and going on major nostalgia trips. I am glad that we were able to do what we love; bring amazing people together and shed more light on the good inside of the gaming community. The pictures for that event are over on Facebook page for This Is Geek. Pokémon Go inspires a lot of different opinions and feelings among those who play it and those who don't. However, it is undeniably cool how the app has brought people together over the last week or so that might never have met otherwise. I know there are plans for more of these kinds of events both with and independent of Extra Life, so if you think that a PokéWalk in your local area might be a possibility, go for it! Let's keep this momentum up and bring one another together for fun, friendship, and also for the kids. View full article
  2. As you may see in the Extra Life national communication you're receiving today....‪#‎Pokemongo‬ has swept the nation and it's a great opportunity to connect possibly new gamers with Extra Life OR use your own Pokemongo adventures as a gaming marathon, contest with friends, etc. to raise funds for your Extra Life page. There's a ton of Pokemongo events all across ATL right now. These are GREAT opportunities to meet fellow gamers and share about Extra Life. Using the Extra Life registration app and/or fundraising app, see if you can get gamers to register and/or donate while you're hunting those pesky creatures. Check out the PokemonGoATL Facebook page for multiple upcoming events in your area. www.facebook.com/PokemonGoATL/
  3. With the massive success of Pokémon Go, the Pokémon news keeps rolling in. In an attempt to cash in on the popularity of the iconic gaming franchise and the hype around the new mobile app, Hollywood deal makers bit the bullet and offered Nintendo and The Pokémon Company a deal too sweet to refuse. The studio in question is reportedly Legendary Pictures, the company behind the recent Warcraft movie. The ink is still wet on the deal, so details on this upcoming Pokémon project are scarce. Legendary did reveal that the film will avoid the traditional conventions of both the animated Pokémon films and the mainline Pokémon games. Instead, Legendary's Pokémon movie will take inspiration from the Japan exclusive 3DS release of Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo. The 3DS title centers on a unique, speaking Pikachu with an unusually keen mind and his human companion, Tim Goodman, as they travel around solving mysteries involving Pokémon. There are also some rumors that Hollywood screenwriter Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra) will be one of the writers attached to the project. The untitled Pokémon movie will be going into production late 2017 if all goes as planned. View full article

    Pokemon Go

    Ok so let's get it out there. Who's playing, and for what team? Go Team Mystic!!! (That's the Blue Team for those who can't remember lol)
  7. Pokémon Go has been sweeping the world for the past several days. To say that the game, which allows players to search out Pokémon in the real world, capture them, and fight over gyms, has created a social craze would be a bit of an understatement Going to any centrally located Pokéstop or gym usually reveals dozens of small groups of players searching for Pokémon or vying for gym control. A certain spirit of camaraderie exists between players of the the mobile game, sheepish grins and conversation exchanged between those who bump into one another in public. A great deal of enjoyment and fun has been had with the app already with more to be had in the future. That being said, Pokémon Go has had a number of problems during its launch that developer Niantic could improve upon. Chief among them has been server stability keeping players from logging in to the app, preventing the app from refreshing Pokémon in the area, and cancelling the capture of Pokémon (c'mon, I was just about to catch that wily Ghastly). Players have also been noticing certain improvements that could be made with app compatibility, safety, and respect for certain areas. This has led to a number of petitions being filed for Niantic to improve or change Pokémon Go. The largest of these petitions asks for Pokémon Go to be made compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 10 mobile, which is currently sitting at over 43,000 signatures. The next largest seems to be the petition with almost 35,000 signatures asking for the app to run on phones that use Intel processors. Several other petitions exist that ask for a Windows phone compatible version of Pokémon Go. Regarding safety concerns, players have begun a petition for a feature that limits Pokémon Go while driving in order to protect against distracted driving, which is an actual problem. The petition's creator, Charles A, envisions an update for the app, "that can detect increased fast movement via the GPS on a user's phone and disabling certain features in the game." He also adds that, "the ability to disable this [...] if there happens to be passengers playing Pokemon Go and not the one operating the motor vehicle to prevent frustration should also be considered." One of the final petitions asks for Niantic to remove Pokéstops and gyms from cemeteries. For obvious reasons, having crowds of people wandering in and around cemeteries playing a game can be disruptive to those who want to pay respect to their deceased loved ones. One might think to themselves, "Oh, that's a silly thing to start a petition over. Of course no one would go into a cemetery and disrupt a funeral or the mourning of other people." Except that reading the comments on the petition clearly indicates that there are a lot of people who could care less. One of the signatures comes from Cheryl Tyiska, the manager of a cemetery in Washington D.C., who states that, "Pokémon Go players have disrupted funeral processions and put themselves in potentially dangerous situations with regards to the roads."
